If the bike isnt pinging.. (sounds like Marbles in a can and is very noticable.(this also could also be referred to as a type of metallic Slapping sound) when the bike runs then its fine.
Because pinging is a detonation caused by a "too rapid" burn of gasoline in the 12.5 to 1 Compression combustion chamber the Monster Wr and YZ makes the "Detonation" will wipe out pistons, Valves and cause poor running. Try your 93 in your area. I think it will do just peachy. If not, Add a booster.
All of What ive read about anything over 100 Octane in the Wr and Yz is that it doesnt like it much.
Remember.. Adding octane "dilutes" the Explosion resulting in less "BTU'S" (british thermal units) and consequentially..less heat. Therefore less power. But at 12.5 to 1, you dont loose anything because the Explosion still is very violent due to the Greater Compression of the Fuel and Air.
So..87 Octane is Much more Explosive than say 93.. but..also can cause severe damage if used in such a High compression engine.
Anyway, Sorry for the Lab Lesson, but I thought Id put in my opinion.
